About this deal

Paired with the large Opus it is a wonderful pen, perhaps a poor-man’s Conid bulkfiller, but a great long-haul writing tool. For example, over the holidays the pen I have reached for most, has been an Online Bachelor, a cheap plastic clear demonstrator but with a joyous 0. I bought this pen on impulse and out of curiosity, when browsing in Selfridge’s stationery department a few weeks ago. According to Joan Evans’ book, the notepaper was remarkably good value and was an immediate success.

The lyrics of Paul Simon pop into my head – every page is neatly bound, “for a poet and a one-man band”, or something. Vijay and I then went to find the nib units, being sold at John Twiss and Vincent’s table with titanium nibs and ebonite feeds in various widths and with a choice of Jowo or Bock fittings and even a choice of colours for the feeds! Under the tray is the booklet, comprising the instructions for use, care guide and guarantee (two years against any defective materials and workmanship). It is also slightly translucent so that, when held against the light, you can make out the shape of the nib inside the cap. Admittedly I have filled far more pages with idle paragraphs of pen and ink sampling from the back, than I have with any meaningful writing from the front, but then it has been a source of recreation, reached for often when tired from the working day and in need of some pen-time escapism, writing simply for the joy of using a fountain pen on nice quality paper and seeing paragraphs of handwriting from different pens, nibs, and inks and in different writing styles.Personally I think it would be better still if it came with a simple lamp shade, perhaps made from the same material as the lightbox and with a means of attaching and removing it. The Fine Writing department is also on their lower ground floor although it had moved position sometime before the pandemic. The instructions advise letting go of three drops of ink at the end of filling, turning the pen upright and then turning the piston back to the home position to draw up any surplus ink. During the morning coffee break with the MB Pop insulated bottle, at lunchtime with the MB Warmer heating lunch box or MB Tresor kids lunch box, at snack time for little (and big) foodies with the MB Gram snack box, at the gym with the MB Positive reusable bottle, and even through till dinner with the Made in France MB Original bento box or MB Gourmet transparent lunch box to use as a doggy bag at a restaurant. The book is nicely bound with a stiff card cover, rounded corners, a single ribbon bookmark, an expandable pocket in the back cover, and an elastic closure.

Perhaps going for a mid-level brightness is the answer and then decide whether you need to go either brighter or darker from there. I tested a selection of pens and inks from my currently inked pen cups, to see which could be used and which could not. Just as insulated lunch bags help to keep you food cool in conjunction with some ice packs, they can help to keep hot meals hot! By signing up you agree with this and confirm that you are over 13 years of age, or have the consent of a parent or guardian. It is easy to forget that our subjects need to be well lit, particularly if indoors using available light.Even though the LEDs are in a ring, you still find ugly reflections on the barrel, if you photograph the pen sideways on. The Platinum Plaisir is an aluminium pen, making for a more attractive and durable body than Platinum’s entry level plastic demonstrator Preppy, but with the same nib and a feed which is visible through the transparent grip section.

It was quite extraordinary: it seemed like no time at all since we were all at school together and now suddenly the topic of conversation is retirement. I have not set myself any particular goals or challenges for 2022 as far as the fountain pen hobby goes.

com and Vijay – both of whom are on Instagram, where we had a catch up and tried a few of each other’s pens. stub nib which I like very much, currently filled with Rohrer and Klingner Salix, a blue-black iron gall ink. If planning to use a notebook for a multi-year bu-jo, then it is wise to consider how the cover might wear. On the other hand, those inks that the paper did not cope with so well, were Waterman Harmonious green, Conway Stewart Tavy by Diamine, Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-budo, and Onoto Meditteranean blue.
